When you invest in furniture and accessories, you look for items that are built to last, and that you won’t get sick of after six months. If you’re buying new items, do you research how the items are made? Are the pieces sustainable or made from eco-friendly materials? If not, it’s something to consider before your next purchase. Here are some of our favorites.
